CATECHISTS AND VOLUNTEERS

What is a Catechist:  Anyone who is sharing and passing on our Catholic Faith Tradition is considered a catechist.   We do not teach a subject; we share a life-style…based on Traditions, Rituals, Prayers and teachings of Jesus; the Catholic-Christian life style.

What are the requirements to be a catechist?  If you are a faith-filled individual, enjoy being with children or youth, dedicated to the Catholic faith and feel that God is calling you to be involved…you may be just the person we need!

Most potential catechists do NOT have a degree in Education or Religion or Theology, we work with our volunteers to prepare them to share the word.

Safe Environment Mandate

All adults working with children and youth within the Albany Diocese are required to fill out a volunteer form, sign a code of conduct, have a background check and attend a VIRTUS training.  We take the safety of our youngest parishioners, your children, very seriously and appreciate your cooperation in the efforts made in keeping them safe.
